Local Sights in Antigua

“Enjoy roaming the open-air markets for artisan products and local delicacies, and hop on a shuttle to head to Guatemala City or Monterrico Beach,” says Scott.


“If you want to do European beaches, consider Croatia,” says Danielle Contray of Budget Travel. “The island of Hvar sits in the Adriatic and has miles of beaches plus medieval architecture and great nightlife.” Not to mention, she says, that you’ll be able to find hotels under $100.

Guatemala’s Coolest City – Things to do in Antigua Guatemala; Hannah Lukaszewicz; Getting Stamped

Guatemala – Antigua Guatemala

With its cobbled streets and baroque-influenced colonial architecture, Antigua Guatemala is a vibrant UNESCO world heritage site with a diverse population of locals and expats from around the world. Your biggest worry when visiting Antigua is that you may not want to leave. I went for 2 weeks and stayed for 8 months! Once the capital of Central America Antigua may be geographically small but it is full of things to do in Antigua from volcano hiking to partying with locals in an empty pool!


The first thing you will notice about Antigua is that it is quite literally surrounded by Volcanoes. It would be rude not to hike at least 1. The most dominant volcano in the skyline is Volcan Agua, this is also the only one you should not attempt to hike. To the west of the town, you will see 2 connected Volcanos. Volcan Acatenango and Volcan Fuego. If you have a good level of fitness and are up for a challenge I urge you to do an overnight hike to Acatenango, book online here for $90.

Kauai, Hawaii

Among domestic (sorta) wedding destinations, few places can rival Hawaii, where pristine sands, turquoise waters and fruity cocktails beckon the bride, the groom and all of their guests. Known as the Garden Island, Kauai is our pick for a nuptials celebration: smaller than its sister islands and populated by fewer people, Kauai boasts a more authentic “old Hawaii” feel.
